Indeed - there is a separate extension from for NJ
You do not need to submit this form if you paid at least 80% of your final tax liability - please verify if that requirement was met.
In additional - you need to enclose a copy of your federal application with the NJ tax return.
Even your extension is valid - you may not simply abate penalty - because you paid late - a late payment penalty is still applied.That is different from late filing penalty.A late payment penalty of 5% of the tax due is charged.Interest is calculated at the annual rate of 3% above the prime rate for every month or portion of a month the tax is unpaid, compounded annually.
(b) An abatement will be granted if the taxpayer can show reasonable cause for failure to file any return or pay any tax when due and makes full payment of the taxes due. All of the facts alleged as a basis for reasonable cause for failure to timely file a return or for failure to timely pay or pay over any tax due must be affirmatively shown in a written statement, containing a declaration that it is made under penalties of perjury, made by the taxpayer or other person against whom the penalty or penalties have been assessed or are assessable. Where the taxpayer or other person is unable to provide such statement or does not have a personal knowledge of such facts, a showing of reasonable cause may be made on behalf of the taxpayer or other person by an individual with a personal knowledge of such facts. In determining whether reasonable cause exists, in addition to an evaluation of such facts, the taxpayer's previous compliance record with respect to all of the taxes imposed may be taken into account.

Correct - That would be the cost of my additional services and it doesn't include your other payments which depends on your service plan.If that is not acceptable - that is OK. You may simply ignore the offer and the answer.
